A.J. Baime of the WSJ recently covered an interesting story on a woman, Janet Littlefield of Menlo Park, California and the reunification of her and her 1970 Plymouth Barracuda which she didn’t think she’d see again.
As a college graduation present from her parents back in 1970, Littlefield’s parents took her to a Chrysler-Plymouth car dealer where she picked out “the hottest one on the lot, a yellow Barracuda with a 318-cubic-inch V-8”. The car was with her for some time after that, and into her first marriage when her husband then bought her a BMW. They put the Barracuda in a barn, and when she and her husband divorced, she never thought she’d see her Barracuda again.
However, it was in 2013, when her second husband gave her an amazing surprise birthday gift – her old Barracuda. He found it the barn, where it’d been untouched for over three decades. He restored the vehicle, wrote a song about her life with it, and had it recorded by professional musicians. The song is called “Cuda Janet”. Talk about a sweet love affair.
